There is a good point to be made that interactive fiction is the future of literary efforts, and in order to promote strength in storytelling, it should not be restricted. Such games have sold in record-breaking numbers to teens and young adults, and reports show that their sequels only increase sales. We may try to hide from violence, but violence has found its way into our living rooms. As long as these violent games are in the hands of children who are still developing their understanding of right and wrong, something must be done to protect our society from the inevitable threat of violent teens.
I'm thinking ether A or D
sorry not A
I'm going with D
yea D is the best one
Probably D....but possibly C...although C does not specifically mention video games...so yes, I would go with D
I chose B for this, yea thats why chose D @texaschic101 Read this excerpt from President Nixon's resignation speech, and then answer the question that follows: Good evening: This is the 37th time I have spoken to you from this office, where so many decisions have been made that shaped the history of this Nation. Each time I have done so to discuss with you some matter that I believe affected the national interest. In all the decisions I have made in my public life, I have always tried to do what was best for the Nation. Throughout the long and difficult period of Watergate, I have felt it was my duty to persevere, to make every possible effort to complete the term of office to which you elected me. In the past few days, however, it has become evident to me that I no longer have a strong enough political base in the Congress to justify continuing that effort. As long as there was such a base, I felt strongly that it was necessary to see the constitutional process through to its conclusion, that to do otherwise would be unfaithful to the spirit of that deliberately difficult process and a dangerously destabilizing precedent for the future. But with the disappearance of that base, I now believe that the constitutional purpose has been served, and there is no longer a need for the process to be prolonged. I would have preferred to carry through to the finish, whatever the personal agony it would have involved, and my family unanimously urged me to do so. But the interests of the Nation must always come before any personal considerations. What is the "spirit" President Nixon talks about? The spirit of Congress and the president getting along The spirit of the American government and its Constitution The spirit of resigning from office before the term has ended The spirit of peaceful talks with foreign nations and leaders
hmmm...I would have missed it...I would have chosen B because, after all, it is talking about him resigning before his term was over because he had no help from Congress
true same thing i was thinking
But then it talks about the constitution..so yes, I see how it would be B
ok thanks ok and for this i have trouble on counterclaims but i think i got this right @texaschic101 Read the paragraph and then answer the question that follows: There are video games that allow teenagers to simulate the experience of stealing cars, dealing drugs, and killing people. Understandably, many people fear this type of game will lead to violent acts in the real world, as it not only glorifies such things, but it allows players to live out the experiences as if they were real. The problem with this argument is that it is a knee-jerk reaction to shocking storylines in fictional worlds. There is no substantial evidence to support the claim that violent video games promote violence in the real world. Banning such works will only lead to censorship of other things, including violent films, television shows, and even plays such as William Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus—which contains more violence than many video games on the market today. Instead of banning violent games, we should be educating the public about the uses and benefits of interactive fiction. Which sentence from this passage states the counterclaim?

I am thinking C
but that is just my opinion
yeah I thought so too but i always get these wrong
................Well....... Is it bad that I like Halo then?
lol no as long as you're not going around with a gone elbowing people and shooting lasers
not too sure though...what exactly is the claim ? This would help us to find the counterclaim
As long as these violent games are in the hands of children who are still developing their understanding of right and wrong, something must be done to protect our society from the inevitable threat of violent teens.
this is the claim so the counterclaim would be opposite right
I am still thinking C
the claim is basically saying that violent games can cause teens to become violent.....counter-claim would be : there is no evidence to prove violent games cause violent teens
hopefully i was right my teacher will let me know on monday
good luck :) although I believe it is right
@texaschic101 So numerous indeed and so powerful are the causes which serve to give a false bias to the judgment, that we, upon many occasions, see wise and good men on the wrong as well as on the right side of questions of the first magnitude to society. This circumstance, if duly attended to, would furnish a lesson of moderation to those who are ever so much persuaded of their being in the right in any controversy. And a further reason for caution, in this respect, might be drawn from the reflection that we are not always sure that those who advocate the truth are influenced by purer principles than their antagonists. Ambition, avarice, personal animosity, party opposition, and many other motives not more laudable than these, are apt to operate as well upon those who support as those who oppose the right side of a question. Were there not even these inducements to moderation, nothing could be more ill-judged than that intolerant spirit which has, at all times, characterized political parties. What can we learn from this paragraph about Hamilton's experience with people? People can be honest or dishonest, but honesty does not necessarily mean they will support the right side of an issue. People can be honest or dishonest, but dishonesty always means they will support the wrong side of an issue. People can be poor or wealthy, but wealth does not necessarily mean they will be kind to people living in poverty. People can be poor or wealthy, but poverty does not necessarily mean they will be fair to people living in wealth.
I'm thinking A or C
